So, Jim, I Understand You Build Decks...

What'll one like this one set me back? Just ballpark it for now, I gotta find my own seaside cliff in KY first.

Yeah, it's amazing. But the thing that jumps out at me is that the deck boards on the largest deck are curved. I didn't know that was an option. Extremely impracticable. I wonder if it's shopped.

Edit: Nope. Not shopped. Just a special order. Wonder what the markup is.

At least. Even if you skimp on materials you're looking at at least 600 bucks.

Which is to say: whoever can afford to have a deck like that on ocean property like that can afford to get it fixed when a nor'easter rolls around. It's probably just a fair weather vacation home anyway.

That fire pit makes me nervous. I'm afraid it will spark or a log will fall and the whole structure go up in smoke. I'd be trapped at the bottom of the cliff!!!

Meh. I want a ventricular railway down to my private cove.
Although I spose the different decking levels would give my Grand-Nephews somewhere to play.

**NOTE**
Best to link that image to Trex ®, the manufacturer from where it came.
Thats a VERY popular image of theirs which they use in much of their advertising.
I've used that image myself and had to jump through a ton of hoops just to get the authorization.
IIRC, that's one of the most expensive composite decks ever built. I know it was the most expensive by Trex®.

I guess I'm a wood snob. I abhor composite decks.
